Now, more than ever, we teach an increasingly diverse student population, including students with disabilities or other special needs.

One of the most effective ways to accomplish this goal is to partner professionals in the classroom through co-teaching.

  3. Included are necessary tools, lists and forms that guide you through the process of implementing co-teaching models that work at all levels.
  4. Gain tips for optimizing your time and laying the groundwork for effective collaboration and increased rigor!

Explore New Ways to Implement the Co-teaching Models!

For more than two decades, I’ve worked hand in hand with teachers in classrooms throughout the USA helping them implement co-teaching models.  We’ve worked together to find solutions to questions like:

  • How do we find the time to use co-teaching models and differentiate instruction and still cover the content?
  • How do I work with a co-teacher who is not an expert in the content area so that students benefit?
  • How do I maintain academic rigor and not lose struggling students?
  • How do I ensure that my students receive the services they should as part of co-teaching without pulling them aside and stigmatizing them?
  • How should my co-teaching partner and I divide responsibilities, whether for preparation or actual teaching?

I’ve seen what works and what doesn’t in an inclusive, co-taught classroom. My mission is to support your success, while pointing out the pitfalls to avoid, through my books, seminars, and coaching.

Don’t just take our word for it…

Susan Fitzell is an outstanding presenter and a great speaker. She is clear and engaging. I have seen few people with her ability to effectively work a large crowd. She is able to connect to a diverse audience. She engaged professional staff and pare-educators equally well by presenting material that was relevant to each employee’s every day work life. She is very empathetic and relates well to the audience. She is one of the few presenters I have seen that teaches about active instruction and actually models it in her own work.

I have interacted with Susan Fitzell for over a decade and her professionalism and dedication stand out amongst the hundreds of presenters I have worked with over the years.
Susan’s passion for the topics she speaks on is very evident. Through sharing her experiences and providing strategies to teachers, she instills confidence and inspires participants to make changes that benefit students.

Fabulous speaker and presenter. Down to earth and knowledgeable. Susan presented great material that will be useful moving forward in a co-teaching or any teaching model. She was thorough and the information is meaningful.

Andrea Dougherty, Woodbury, NJ

Susan’s hands-on and relevant delivery of material and comfort with sharing personal experiences as an educator cultivated confidence in our teachers. She is very knowledgeable in each topic she presents and is more than willing to share her knowledge with the audience. She clearly loves what she does and truly cares about the educational welfare of children.

Kimberly D. Hebert, Principal

I was fortunate to work with Susan as she helped us to implement the co-teaching model in our classrooms. Susan provided high quality, sustained, whole-staff training in differentiation strategies and strategies for promoting successful co-teaching instructional team building. With Susan’s instructional help and consistent classroom coaching support, we were able to make our Adequate Yearly Progress (A.Y.P.) target goals in reading and math for the first time in the history of our school.

Brent Williams, Principal
North Lenoir High School, LaGrange, NC

Susan was an amazing presenter. She was open to discussion and personable. The content was superb and I walked away with several takeaways that were easy to implement. I would recommend this presenter to anyone!
